Presented by the Kaiser Family Foundation
April 26, 2016 | 3-4 p.m. ET
Register now for an informative web briefing on April 26 featuring findings from a new policy brief from the Kaiser Family Foundation and the National HCH Council on how the Affordable Care Act’s Medicaid expansion has affected patients who are homeless and the providers who care for them. The ACA Medicaid expansion provided a significant opportunity to increase health coverage and improve access to care for individuals experiencing homelessness, who historically have had high uninsured rates and often have multiple, complex physical and mental health needs.
The briefing will address changes in insurance coverage, revenues, and costs among HCH projects in both expansion and non-expansion states; and examine experiences in health centers that serve a broad low-income population. The webinar will feature insights from the co-authors of the recent analysis, as well as perspectives from two health care leaders from an expansion and non-expansion state.
